Where are we going today?

Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center

Nature Experiences include 2 child suitable tour types: The Canyon Nature Tour, encompassing a wealth of narrative about the local ecosystem, plus the Discover Together tour combines that with additional elements of outdoor survival skills and pro active environmentalism. These are for over 5 years.

Plenty of hiking (bikes not permitted) nature trails to explore, but please do it with full awareness all round: there are (protected) veonmous snakes and poison ivy in the area, so be sure the kids know what to avoid before you go.

The burgeoning nature play area is aimed at younger kids and offers natural features to interact with, with new features being added all the time including a toddler trail.

If you look it up in advance older kids can also particpiate in the Citizen Science program, gathering data for the researchers as they go around.

    Great trails. Easily accessible for young & old. Trail markers are best in DFW area so far. Great events!

    Went there for the first time last weekend to hike. The trails are not that long, but they are very pretty. Feels like your in the woods and nowhere near the city. Nice place to spend part of the day.

    Highly recommended.
